Hi there, i got a question about the Prepositional Phrase Quiz – 2. Here it is Q: _____ he finishes the projections, we’ll have done the necessary research to complete the project.

I do not ask for the answer but to the statement which says (we’ll have done the necessary research to complete the project.). Isn’t it supposed to be We’d have done instead of we’ll have done ??

Please explain.
Thanks a lot

In this case we are referring to a future time and therefore use the future perfect tense (will have done). ‘We’d have done’ is used in the past conditional form and refers to a past moment in time.

It was a good experience to do all the three exercises in a single stroke. I could manage to good excellent rating. But my concern is on using the preposition while writing a sentence.It’s confusing

Well, I think that the best way to learn english is to be surrounded by people who speak english fluently. I know that there’re more ways to learn this difficult language and all of because the fact that’s an international language and most commonly used all the times in the uk and in the United States, The biggest joke that i have ever heard is that spanish is more difficult than english but i think different. So kenneth my friend, I love English and i will confirm and accomplish all what can i do to study this language. I don’t know what’s your pronunciation But don’t get so mad if you actually wrong in some things. I can learn english by listening to news and reading many books that i can. Good lucke and great idea for about.com to study english online.
